The Lt. Governor’s Office, Rhode Island National Guard and several organizations and businesses are teaming up to send care packages to Rhode Island guardsmen overseas during the holidays.</p><p>Capt. Michael Calcagni got a care package last year. He said it makes difference when you’re away from family during the holidays. “However when you’re away one thing that is always uplifting, no matter what time of year, is mail call,” said Calcagni. “And when you can’t be home and mail brings home to you, it’s even better.”</p> Wed, 30 Oct 2013 19:40:10 +0000 Catherine Welch 24025 at http://ripr.org Rhode Island Rolls Out "Operation Holiday Cheer" For Troops
